Weather Permitting

Explore how Minnesotans have experienced the weather - how they've dressed for it, played in it, battled it, talked about it and survived it. The exhibit brings to life the elements of Minnesota's theater of seasons and the ways its citizens cope with perpetual highs and lows, drawing upon the Society's collections and an ingenious array of environmental settings and cleverly clothed mannequins to present the ordeals, rituals and memories of Minnesota weather. With artifacts, photographs, multimedia shows and hands-on activities, the exhibit is an exploration of the weather's impact on our lives now and through history
 
Highlights:
  •  Experience a tornado from a recreated 1960s home in “Get to the Basement!” a powerful multimedia show focusing on the human experiences and emotions evoked by a series of tornadoes that struck Fridley in May 1965.
  • Learn the how the Weatherball became a downtown landmark and a common word in the local vocabulary.
  • Peek into a vintage ice-fishing house and explore the frigid charms of ice fishing
